Lovely Lovely 4-tracks...
This sounds very modern considering it probably isn't. I love the beat breakdowns, in fact the whole rhythm track (sample?) is supercool. If you had soaked the vocals in echo it could've been U2's entry in this year's "Ibiza Festival de Techni" or something... less EL & P then it is Petey Gabriel... YMMV.

Vintage New Wage
This was the working man's techno-fusion at the time. You should do a remake of this one with new school sounds and digital recording... This is one of the best songs you guys have ever done...
